Knitting: Hats and cowls for the little ones. I'm using the Lottie Cowl pattern for all three children and the Lottie Beret for Sugar Plum. The boys hats are going to be Be Loving Hats. Pictured above is Little Man's set. I used Cascade 220 for his in 1944. Reading: Village Diary. I have always maintained that Miss Read's Thrush Green series is my favorite, but The Fairacre Books are growing on me!
